Monday mornings are tough enough as is, but when you throw in some night time allergy medicine taken the night before, they are downright brutal. There isn't enough coffee in the world that can wake you up from sinus medicine.

I'm happy to report that Mark has returned safely from his trip! The house was terribly quiet while he was gone aside from me talking to the cats (don't judge me please). I'm also happy to say that I only cooked twice the whole 2 weeks he was gone, but I am definitely happy to be cooking again. One person can only eat so many frozen meals you know?

We have finally planned a mini vacation for the summer! We will be going to visit Washington DC in August!! The flights and hotel have been booked and we cannot wait. I'm ready to explore the city and what it has to offer, especially all those free museums and all.

Here's an Iphone picture recap since my last blog post.

  Strawberry lemonade muffins made from a recipe found in Southern Living. Delicious.

Mark and I prepped yesterday for our lunches this week. We cooked up a bunch of veggies and some quinoa. I decided to cut up the fruit in our fridge and put it in snack sized bags which makes me more likely to eat it than if it was whole. It makes no sense, but if it's in a bag I'll more likely eat it. Plus it saves a lot of time. I just don't recommend doing this with fruit that browns very easily (bananas, apples, etc.), though you could just toss in some lemon juice to stop the browning.
